SAMP minimizing/flickering

Post by farquad »

I've been looking for a solution but didn't find anything. Problem occurs randomly, only in samp.

Reinstalled the game, samp, even windows and nothing.

Windows 10 education 1607
Asus prime x370-pro
AMD Ryzen 5 1600
Corsair 2x4GB @ 2933
MSI GeForce 1050Ti

Any ideas?

That could be a problem with the lead which goes from the computer to back of monitor.

Have you tried using another lead to see if this problem persists? (like from computer to back of tower?)

As that flickering is normally caused by a dodgy lead as I used to have that sort of flickering a few years ago until I changed my lead.

artifacts and pixels like that point only to your graphics card
1:install DDU, remove all drivers and play without 'em. If it keeps on happening, you can also try to:
2: change pci slot, you should generally use the top one (x16), but you can also try the 2nd one from the top
3: try a different gpu

Since this problem only occurs when playing samp, i assume it's probably driver related, so solution #1 should fix it

It turned out to be a ram problem. Chip 1 - same things happen, chip 2 - hours and hours and nothing wrong. Thank you for your advices guys.
